you’d be converting your front section into a trektop version.. no fold just a flip back so it would actually make the sun rider function bigger.
i’ll be back at my jeep in a few hours but i’ll measure mine and will report back
You could also try this. No new parts required.
My rear & side windows were removed entirely… and I was still getting bludgeoned in the head by the top while driving in my neighborhood.
I suspect that Sunrider was never designed for highway speeds, more likely just around town. I never liked or used mine and it was only open at Bestop's photoshoot when they came to San Diego to take photos of my TJ and someone else's CJ with new Bestop tops they comped us.
This shows how Bestop positioned it for the shoot so yours looks like how they did it. That hottie was in their marketing department, that was a fun day on the beach back in around 2011.

I finally received additional feedback from Bestop.
They created a case and sent me an email, to which I could not reply because their server was not properly configured.
I reached out to them from their website and referenced the case # in the original email, other wise i would have had to start from scratch.
As it is, I had to provide them with photos (again), proof of purchase (again), and a detailed description of the issue (again).
This time, they replied that there is a support strap that 'might' solve the issue, but they do not have any in stock at this time.
I should receive one as soon as they are available.
I can't wait to see what they provide...
i knew i forgot something lmao..
measurement of my straight bar is exactly 26" from end to eyelet so in theory, if they were to send you those two bars, you could cut them to the right length and see what happens.
after thinking about it though, i wonder what would happen if you were to just remove this support bolt:

it looks like that's what's keeping the rear-most half of the front sunrider in the down position. if you remove it on both sides, does it allow the sunrider to open all the way up?
Do you want a strap? I’m sure I have the 1” webbing and I have both the adjustment buckle and a hook…. I can make one for you.
This is a very generous offer.
I’m not looking to put anyone out.
How about if I don’t get one from Bestop in, say 30 days I’ll reach back out?
